    There's my second main project, started in dec 2015
    It's a reboot of all Aoe like and EE(empire earth) in a warcraft 3 map
    I tried to do simple mechanics but very complete and dynamic.
    Each ages you can choose different bonuses that give also tech-tree improvements, so 2 players in late game can have completely different units !
    For now there are only 8 ages (From -50 000 BC to 1940 AD) but i plan to go to the future age in later updates. There are a strict minimum of different unit type (infantry, spear lines, cavalry etc...) with clear efficiences and drawbacks.
    The map is translated and ready to play with 12 players.
    The VII age will have 4 different branches, Modern, Steampunk, Good and evil Fantastic. It'll be added late February.
    The map 0.1.2.3 : http://www.epicwar.com/maps/262802/
    The Age tree (uncompleted, and just a preview) : [​IMG]
    The map is uploaded at Makemehost, so share a maximum of feedback if needed.
    Enjoy !

    Nice, actually tested it in Singleplayer - actually like the rescource triggers, you implemented.
    It's really close on how AoE handled it.

    However, I kinda feel that Lumber is a bit underrepresented in this game - most of the time I really needed just Gold to get my Techs and units, while Stone and Wood were present in mass.
    Will gladly look forward more updates on this, as it looks promising.

    By the way, also had few camera issues when I rotated the map - is this caused by a trigger?
    Also, a -far or -cam xxx command would be nice. :-)

    With wood you can build granaries or markets to generate slowly gold. At the end of the game the whole map is covered of granaries :D. Raiding weak granaries of other players is a effective strategy c:
    There's a camera command that reset every 2s the distance to the number choosed. It's -zoom X

    Ah fair enough. I didn't knew as there was no quest log.

    But yeah, Graineries seem to be essential, though I feel fish and the gold rescources are pretty strong as well.

    How many eras will be in the final game? Will it go till far future or rather aim for some kind of Age of Mythology experience - actually have grown fond of the fantasy ages to be honest. :-)

    for now 11, check out the age tree. Tech go to the "future" but fantasy branch go further with magic, so they'll get overpowered magic weapons and soldiers.

    New release 0.1.2 Prototype
    ☼8th age added with 5 branches (Oil age Capitalist/comunist, Amethyst age (dark fantasy), diamond age (good fantasy), Steampunk)
    ☼The player's color is displayed in age passing messages.
    ☼Leader board scores debugged.
    ☼Some balancing of older ages

    Expect some hotfixes soon, i didn't tested the map in Bnet yet.
    The 8th age gave me a lot of work, so later age may take 1 month each to be add.
